1- if no sin enters Heaven (Rev -21:27) And James tells us if we commit one sin, you are guilty of all sin (James 2:10+11) where do you think the idea of a venial sin comes from? (If you answer 1 John 5 – He is referring to our physical death there as Paul mentions when he wrote –
1 Cor 11:30 “For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.”)
2- am I right in what I said in my previous e-mail about Justification?[/quote:2q4q9mv0]
Ron, you are in no position to tell me what 1 John 5 is referring to. Especially after your repeated misinterpretations.
[b:2q4q9mv0]1 John 5:16-17[/b:2q4q9mv0]
[color=blue:2q4q9mv0]16[/color:2q4q9mv0] If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say that you should pray. [color=blue:2q4q9mv0]17[/color:2q4q9mv0] All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly.
If you can’t see that this verse is making the distinction of 2 different types of sin then I don’t know what to tell you but that you must have some real thick protestant glasses that don’t permit you to see it.
You see Ron, we can’t even get passed little things like this because if you see that I am right, you feel like your losing the battle and going away from Christ in some way. Ever occur to you that you may be getting closer to Christ? ” title=”Wink” />
